Writing Effective Proposals
on Oct 17, 2017 at 9:18:18 pm

I see lots of posts here on the Cow from people who screwed themselves over by not being in agreement on their deliverables with their clients.

I just wrote an article for ProVideo Coalition on writing effective video proposals.

Please take a look at let me know your thoughts.

Hi Greg; I like it. Wish I could have seen an example of the layout you use. We have waffled between portrait and landscape orientation.

Also for all dollar amounts we round to the nearest dollar and do not use any decimals.

So $1500.00 now looks like $1500

Looks like less, doesn't it?

I also noticed you weren't paying for lunch for your client. Hmmm....on shoots we always assume we are paying for lunches for everyone on the set and it is in the budget...

Anyway, nice job!

Hi Rich,

Thanks for the kind words. our layout is in portrait. You can fit more on a page.

Great tip about not using decimals when possible. We try to do that too. However the deposit may include decimal points depending on the amount and deposit percentage.

For lunch, we prefer to not have it in the budget, as we try to keep our pricing low. We feel that this also gives the client some choices.
